Family Group Sheets have been used
for many years in genealogical research to show a
family as a unit and what information you have on
each person. They consist of a husband, wife, and
each of their children. Before computers and even
now genealogists make one of these out in paper form
on each family to keep track of the data they have
collected and what is still needed when out doing
research at the courthouse, library or other research
center. Genealogy societies have long collected them,
to help connect researchers who were searching the
same family. One of my earliest contacts when starting
my family history was due to the use of family group
sheets kept by a society that I contacted in England.
As all genealogy data
you find compiled by others, use these as a resource
for clues, so that you may get a copy of primary source
documentation for your own files. Family Group Sheets
are considered secondary sources in genealogical research.
If you use any of the data found on these pages, please
remember to cite the author as your source.

March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists
organized the Michigan Comprehensive Genealogy
Database. The idea was to provide a single entry
point for all counties in Michigan, where collected
databases would be stored. In addition, the databases
would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even
if an individual were found in more than one county,
they could be located in the index.
At the same time, volunteers were found who were
willing to coordinate the collection of databases
and generally oversee the contents of the web
page. My name is Rose Edwards and I'm responsible
for Native Genealogy in Michigan. Please contact
me if you would like to contribute to this database.

for new information that can be added to these pages.
Thank-you for your understanding and cooperation,
